About

The Computer Engineering programme of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is unique in providing a holistic view of system design. An in-depth understanding of hardware and software is necessary to provide the enabling technology for new societal trends such as ubiquitous online presence and the Internet of Things.

Overview

During the Computer Engineering programme of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) students will study big data and cloud computing, multicore processors, heterogeneous accelerators, parallel computing are all emerging technologies that are crucial in many domains like the economic sectors, but also increasingly in the medical domain. As future computer engineer, you will be contributing to the design of systems and computational platforms. You will make sure that the requirements of particular applications are optimally supported, by selecting the right combination of hardware and software architectures for satisfying specific constraints with regard to performance, power and cost.

What you will learn

The programme provides you with the skills that are needed in order to design, develop and use software and hardware for computer systems. The courses in the programme address the three different aspects of computer engineering: software design, hardware design and the integration of the two. Understanding the theories that underlie system software (including programming, operating systems and compilers) will help you to create software designs. In addition, the Computer Engineering programme will prepare you for the engineering challenges that lie ahead. 

You will learn about modern computer architectures and networks and how to explain processors and their ability to perform their calculations, in addition to suggesting methods for optimising these calculations. The processor design project challenges you to optimise your own processors for specific applications with given optimisation targets (e.g. high speed or low power). The purpose of this hands-on project is to achieve optimum system performance that meets the design criteria.

Academic requirements

GRE admission requirements GRE® The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today's graduate and business school programs worldwide. It contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.
154 (verbal)
163 (quantitative)
4 (analytical)

English requirements

TOEFL admission requirements TOEFL® IBT The TOEFL iBT® is given online through the internet at designated testing site. The test measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The score refers to the total score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading), each subject has a range of 0 - 30.
90
IELTS admission requirements IELTS The International English Language Test System (IELTS) tests your English-language proficiency on a scale of 1 – 9. The score refers to the combined average score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading).
